Photos and Description of this Zihuatanejo holiday condo

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Casa Guapito is a most unique condo, designed for relaxation. Perched high above the 2 infinity pools, our private wood deck is an oasis of peacefulness. From your deck and living room you can watch the activity in the beautiful Zihuatanejo bay, the comings and goings of the cruise ships stopping in the bay and the endless expanse of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The condo, located in the beautiful La Casa Que Ve Al Mar complex is the perfect location for a special vacation in Mexico. Take a 3-5 minute walk down to the beach and join in the activities, have a great meal or drinks in the many restaurants surrounding you, spend the late afternoon around our beautiful infinity pools and watch romantic sunsets from our private deck.

Morning walks to town (about 20 minutes or so) along the scenic La Ropa road (or 5 minutes by taxi) are a great way to start the day and an excursion of our friendly and warm town and it's people. Go down to the pier and catch a small boat to Playa Las Gatas, about 15 minutes away for a great day of snorkeling and enjoying fresh grilled fish from the ocean, grab a 10 minute cab to Ixtapa for golf our discos and at the end of any day, you have your wonderful, relaxing, condo, Casa Guapito to retire to. Peaceful Bliss. It just does not get any better than this.

About Jack Bittner

We found Zihua about 20 years ago, staying in hotels for most of that time. We fell in love with Zihua and were fortunate to find this most beautiful condo in the best of all condo complexes in Zihua, La Casa Que Ve Al Mar. Now that we own 2 condos there, (see our VRBO listing #275681 for our 2 bedroom), we can spend all the time we can get away in the most wonderful and relaxing environment we have cherished for all these years.

Jack Bittner purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jack Bittner chose Zihuatanejo

Zihuatanejo (Zihua) is a real live Mexican town, not sterilized into perfection, but ever so attractive to us because of our wonderful Mexican neighbors and friends, who always make us feel welcome and wanted. The hardest part of going to Zihua is getting on the plane to go home.

What makes this condo unique

The peace and quiet of Casa Guapito along with the Million Dollar Views from our outside deck make for an extremely relaxing vacation away from it all. Getting out of bed each morning to a wonderful clear day watching the endless sea and activity below in the bay is equally as charming as the romantic and breathtaking Sunsets we enjoy from our deck.

Couldn't Have Stayed Anywhere Better

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing condo at Casa Que Ve al Mar for a week.

We always stay in Ixtapa, but had always been curious about staying in Zihua, and we definitely didn't regret our decision with Casa Guapito!

Everything about the condo is 5-star, and we just loved the art & architecture everywhere. From the floors to the furniture, the kitchen and bathroom, a lot of thought and care were put into the design of this space.

We looked at some other condos in the building while we were there, and they didn't even come close to what Jack has done with his place.

We called the terrace 'The Office,' and it was a pretty great place to wake up with a coffee and take care of the day's business before getting to fun in the sun!

On a side note, I have to give the building huge credit for their salt water pools too...what a fantastic alternative to chlorination.

We have our own Homeaway-listed condos on Palmar beach in Ixtapa, and I'm just glad that Jack isn't our neighbour there. Casa Guapito would be pretty tough competition! :)

We spent 4 glorious weeks at Casa Guapito. The condo has everything you need. Having coffee each morning on the deck and taking in the fabulous view was one of the highlights of our stay. The complex is first rate with 2 beautiful infinity pools. Lots of activities in and around the area. Check out the Hobie Cat rental with Javier at the beach by Paty's. He will take you our or let you go solo if you have experience. We ended our stay with a splurge at Tentaciones Restaurant which we highly recommend. We had the pleasure of meeting Jack, the owner, who by chance was staying in his 2 bedroom unit in the complex. Jack was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will be back!

Beyond amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic for a couple looking for privacy and million dollar views. I needed a place to stay while studying for an important exam, and did that every day from the deck. Super relaxing being able to look up from my books to see Playa la Ropa and Playa los Gatos (tip - bring binoculars!). For a break I would walk the few steps down to the infinity pool (only 1 floor down!) and admire the view from the edge of the pool. Then every afternoon would walk down to Playa La Ropa (about 10min downhill all the way going to) have a few margs and bodysurf then hide under a beach umbrella while eating chips and guac. Amazing place, and great service from the on site security personal if you just need a cab or something.

Unbelievable. Been there, still can't believe it.

  • 5 of 5

I'm pretty sure that you'll grin when you walk in for the first time. You could pay the same amount for a hotel in Arizona (don't), so when the door opens and the condo looks like a really nice place, you feel some relief. And then it keeps getting nicer as you walk into the hall and the whole place opens up-- nothing between you and the West wall, which is floor to ceiling glass, and which looks out onto a complete view of the bay. North to South.

When you come home at night, you're going to find yourself dimming the lights so that you can scope out the beach from the couch, or the bar, and decide where you want to go tomorrow. And every morning when you see the view again, you're going to laugh. Don't go alone, because you need someone you can turn to several times a day and say "I can't believe this".

Brass tacks: Comfy bed. Ample storage. Great shower. TV and DVDs. Good selection of vacation reading on the shelves. Kitchen fit for dinners in. Couch is sleepable if you need it. Clean and bright. Looks like the home of someone with decent taste, not a hotel room. Wifi is adequate everywhere and streaming-capable in bedroom. (Mexico Netflix: hey, how come this isn't available in the States?!) Friendly concierge. Short walk (~6 minutes) to the beach.

If you're not feeling adventurous, the air conditioning can keep you as cool as you want. You can stay in hermit mode and take in the sun from the private deck, then maybe venture down to one of the nice infinity pools. You can walk five minutes and hit a few little stores for supplies (drinks, snacks) or six minutes to the first beach restaurant and the bay. From the condo (or anywhere you've walked to) taxis are cheap and plentiful--it's easy to zip out to a restaurant you've heard about or catch a lift to town for some afternoon wandering.

This was the perfect home base for five days. Every time I stepped out, I felt like I was in the perfect starting place for a day's adventure. Every time I came back to the condo, I felt like I'd found some crazy loophole that let me live in a beautiful, perfect place without paying the week's toll of worries and woes. Honestly, I can't believe I'm telling anyone else about this place, but my correspondence with the owners was so pleasant that I can't not. I'm going back next year, and still I'm sure I won't believe it when I see it. Looking forward to the grin when I do. Hope you are too. Cheers!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you guys enjoyed the condo, our private deck and your adventures in Zihua. I want our guest to feel that they are in a friends home and it truly sounds like you felt that way. Thanks for taking the time to write these kind words and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 wonderful days at Casa Guapito recently. The condo is charmingly decorated, comfortable and well maintained. Although a one bedroom, it seemed very spacious due to the glass windows/door in the livingroom area showcasing the million dollar view of the bay and La Ropa,. Also the large deck with 2 loungers and a bistro table added to the living area for sunning, morning coffee and evening cocktails! I was pleased with the size of the kitchen which is larger than that of the 2 bedroom condo kitchen we had stayed in a two years ago. Having a washer/dryer in the unit allowed us to travel lighter than usual.

The staff of La Casa Que Ve Al Mar is excellent and we feel very secure and welcomed by staff and residents when we stay. Thank you Jack for sharing your condo with us!

Cozy and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

I moved into this condo after staying in Casa Vista Grande (same owner) with my husband who had to return to work. This condo is also tastefully furnished and decorated. I enjoyed the private deck for sun bathing and watching sunsets.

It has a great view of the bay. I like to cook and since this condo does not have an oven, the owner who has great attention to detail, provides a grill on the deck.

As I mentioned in my review of Casa Vista Grande, the complex is convenient to restaurants, shopping, the beach, the center of town. The owner is responsive and helpful. The amenities are as described in the listing. The path to the road is steep, but inexpensive taxis are readily available if needed. I would recommend this condo for one or two people. One of our favorite restaurants for a special treat since it is a bit pricey is Tentaciones which is a 5 minute taxi ride from the condo complex. The condo owner provides an information sheet with his favorite restaurants. I would like to add La Perla to that list. I love Zihua and plan to return many times. Both this condo and Casa Visa Grande contribute to an unimaginably wonderful vacation experience. My husband and I appreciate the owner's sharing his beautiful home away. And like us he loves cats!

The absolute best location in Zihuatanejo. The condo is beautifully positioned just above the La Ropa Beach, an easy walk to many restaurants and to town as well !! Quiet, yet close to everything.
